This past month flew by and I realized that this is the first chance I had to really sit down and blog. I started the month teaching for the fast track photography program at SAIT. I was doing my basic lighting class and my wedding photography class and had 19 enthusiastic students. It was a great time and I am know looking forward to teaching again in a few weeks in the night classes.
I also took a job in retail sales with Saneal Cameras in Market Mall. I had been thinking of something to fill my day's as Cool and Luke have become more independent and Cool is now able to watch his brother. I had been thinking about this for a while as teaching in the evening is great but I only have a few mornings where I was teaching at the senior centres. When I saw that Saneal was looking it seemed like a good fit as it is close to my home and they are willing to work with my teaching and shooting schedules. It is also nice as now I am able to have access to all the different cameras and lenses, thus learning about them which helps me when I am talking to students about gear. So far it has been enjoyable and they have been great to work for.
One of the challenges though has been able to not fall of with my photo a day challenge. With some of my day's being very full I have come close, but I am happy to say I have been able to stay with it. Now I will play catch up, once again, with photo's from the last month.
